Game On: Hornets @ Jazz

Published: February 21, 2009

Pistol Pete MaravichDid we lose one game last night in LA, or two?

The Hornets move to Utah today, trying to shake off that hard-fought OT loss to the Lakers. It won’t help that much-loved Jazz owner Larry Miller passed away yesterday, putting us up against an arena full of emotional players and fans, all with a winning tribute in mind.

Apart from missing Boozer still, the 32-23 Jazz are fully healthy, and their 90-85 defeat of the visiting Celtics on Thursday gave them six wins in seven tries. They’re 23-6 at home this season, and just a game behind New Orleans in the standings.

The Hornets and Jazz have met once already this season, in Utah, that game also a segababa for the Hornets right after playing the Lakers in LA. The Jazz took that one easily, 116-90.

Game tips a little after 8pm Central. No word on Hilton Armstrong’s status just yet. Deron Williams vs. Chris Paul. Ding ding.
